MSW Land Use Team Secures Planning Board Approval for Multifamily Project in Jersey City

On Tuesday, September 22nd, the Jersey City Planning Board granted site plan approval in connection with the development of a 4-story multifamily residential building located at 67 Virginia Avenue, Jersey City, New Jersey.

The project was previously approved in October of 2019, but was amended to account for changes to the front yard setback, internal building layout and additional amenities.

The developer, Kontos Construction Co LTD, has been actively developing both commercial and residential projects throughout New Jersey since 1981.

Chris J. Murphy, Esq. led the firm’s successful efforts on behalf of the land use team, which included Patrick Lesbirel from Brick City Reconstruction and Arthur Kuyan from Stonefield Engineering & Design.
